So I have loved my 1D very much for the past couple years but I have switched from shooting sports and for news papers to shooting portraits and weddings almost exclusively. So that 1D has a lot of features that go unused. I have a buddy down in LA willing to trade his 5d MKII for my 1D MKIII. Give me some pros and cons of the trade.
I shoot mostly weddings & events and use both 1 & 5 series bodies .. sometimes I need accurate servo focus on moving subjects (aisle shots, motion posing, etc.) and use the 1 series for those .. and the extra reach of the 1.3 crop helps during ceremonies as well.
But for much of the day my 5D2 is used .. great IQ, adequate focus, and FF goodness for wide aperture bokeh and wide angle stuff.
Different parts of the day I use different bodies .. not a biggie as I always have two bodies on me most all the time anyways.
